    Hi, when I run RegCleaner, SpyBot, virus scans etc, I notice that they scan through programs that I have uninstalled a long time ago. Is there any way I can make sure that all remnants of these programs are deleted? Are they taking up valuable space? Even after I delete RegClean's suggestions, these remnants still show up again at a later scan. My OS is win98 se, with IE 6 and OE 6...Thanking you in advance.

    I use a program called System Mechanics that does a good job in getting rid of the remnants of this or that. It is not free, but if you look at eBay, you can probably get it for $10 to $20.
